M.Ed. Practical Approaches for Research Analysis

This course is designed to extend beyond the content of the Research Methodology course and more fully equip students interested in conducting quantitative or mixed methods studies. It will build on students’ understanding of the basic concepts and methods related to descriptive, parametric and non-parametric analysis and provide the opportunity to run analyses and report findings using basic statistical software. Emphasis will be placed on the practical application of statistics. Students will develop the necessary skills to interpret empirical findings in published research as well as in their own applied research.
